Music Monday: “My Wild Love” – The Doors

My wild love is crazy, she screams like a bird…

 

This Music Monday, I felt it only appropriate to choose a song from The Doors since this Saturday would have been the late Jim Morrison’s 69th birthday.  This lesser known Doors song, “My Wild Love” is the eighth track on their Waiting for the Sun album and was rumored to be added to the album as a last minute “filler” track after the 17 minute “Celebration of the Lizard” was cut.

Music Monday: “Who Is It” – Bjork

Carry my joy on the left, carry my pain on the right…

I had this particular version of Bjork’s “Who Is It” stuck in my head before going to bed last night.  The more commonly known version from her 2004 album Medulla is based around a synthesized, percussion heavy sound without the hand bells.  I love the bell choir version of the song, the bell’s chimes add a dream like quality to the song—almost drowning out Bjork’s voice at certain points and at different moments adding emphasis to her words. The focus becomes more about the sensory experience of listening, giving the song an interesting movement—every experience is different.
